How many sessions are needed to obtain an optimal result?
To obtain an optimal result, several biorevitalization peel sessions are often necessary.
The number of sessions varies according to the part of the body treated (face, neckline, scars, stretch marks) and the initial state of the skin, the main aggravating factors being age, sun exposure and smoking. For a rejuvenation of the facial skin, 1 to 5 sessions are recommended, with 7 days between the sessions.
Its effectiveness in revitalizing and correcting skin imperfections is superior to superficial peels while avoiding desquamation (loss of the superficial layer of the epidermis). Thanks to the action of hydrogen peroxide, the biorevitalization peel does not involve social crowding in the days following treatment.
Compared to traditional peels, the biorevitalization peel reduces the risk of pigmentary rebounds (appearance of brown spots on the treated area). It can be used safely on black, Asian or mixed skin.
A biorevitalization peel is ideal ALL YEAR ROUND as it does not involve social exclusion or additional precautions related to the sun.
PRX-T33 is a procedure to help improve the hydration, texture and pigmentation of the skin.
It is advised to avoid any exfoliating products (such as glycolic, lactic, salicylic acids) and retinol (Vitamin A) products on your skin for one week prior to treatment and until healing is complete. Similarly, avoid shaving or waxing the area for a few days prior to treatment. The procedure should not be performed alongside any other exfoliating treatments including other skin peels or microdermabrasion without the agreement of your treating practitioner. The treatment should not be performed on irritated or sunburnt skin and it is recommended to avoid tanning and sunbeds for at least 2 weeks.
If you have previously suffered with cold-sores, you must disclose this to the practitioner prior to treatment as you may require medication to prevent an outbreak.
If you have had any recent beauty or aesthetic treatments, this should be discussed with your practitioner to ensure that it is safe to proceed with the procedure.
A medical history form must be completed prior to any treatment.
If you are feeling unwell on the day of treatment, please contact the clinic to re-arrange your appointment.
Following treatment, there may be some transient heat, redness, swelling, tenderness. The treated area may peel which may last for up to seven days. It is essential to use the correct aftercare products as prescribed by the practitioner to aid any the effects of the procedure. Although the peel is non-photosensitising, it is recommended to use a high SPF sun protectant during the healing process.
